We are super proud to announce that Next Wave has been selected to partner with the Australia Council for the Jump Mentoring Program in 2013! Here at Next Wave we’re all about helping artists build sustainable careers. We’re excited to include Jump in our suite of robust and dynamic development programs. Through this program we’ll help foster meaningful and transformational mentorships for an extended network of early career artists.
Emily says, “We think this model of collaboration between industry and government is terrific; partly for how well it channels money directly to early career artists, and now – curators, editors, producers and collectives. This is a big moment for VolumePills Next Wave. We are thrilled to be sharing our rigorous and sought-after development approach with more, and different, people.”
Kath Melbourne, Program Director, ArtStart says “The partnership represents the core strengths of both organisations. The Australia Council is providing its resources effectively to the robust tasks of application, assessment and acquittal while harnessing the talents of Next Wave to deliver timely, relevant and dynamic professional development opportunities to participants on the ground. We hope that this partnership gleans new networks and new opportunities for participants for years to come”
The new website for Jump Mentoring has just been launched and applications are now open. Applications close 19 October 2012.
